Whole Fruit Margarita

So as you all know, I’m a huge fan of my Vitamix blender.  In fact, it often travels with us on our family vacations.  This week we brought it with us to the beach.  I decided to try something a little different than my usual family friendly smoothie recipes, and stumbled up the most delicious Whole Fruit Margarita recipe.  I did change up the recipe a bit and decided not use ice in blending and instead served the Margaritas over ice.  These margaritas were a hit among all the  adults, REFRESHING!  Enjoy!

Ingredients
1/4 cup (60ml) water
6 ounces (180ml) tequila (I used Patron Silver)
2 ounces (60ml) cointreau
1 medium orange peeled
1 lime, peeled
1 lemon, peeled, halved, seeded
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons organic sugar
*optional: 6 cups ice cubes if you want a “frozen” margarita

Directions
Blend, pour over ice and enjoy!

Yield: 6 cups
(I doubled the recipe and added in an extra orange, using 3 oranges to serve 6 adults two rounds, yielding close to 12 cups)
